City Garage announces US Premiere of [Almost Equal To] by Jonas Hassen Khemiri


How much do you earn? Who do you serve? The new world economics is built on inequality. The concentration of wealth at the top end of the population threatens us all. This remarkable new work from one of Sweden’s most celebrated novelists and playwrights takes on this issue in highly personal terms: a young man from an immigrant background trying to find his first job; a professor of economics desperately trying to hold onto the one he has; his wife, who nurses fantasies of an ecologically responsible life in the country; a homeless hustler who might be more than he seems; and a young woman who, in the cut-throat world of her office, may or may not be responsible for the death of a rival co-worker. Think economics is strictly for academics? This play, with its unforgettable moments of funny and brutal honesty about the human cost of a rigged system, will make you think again.

Jonas Hassen Khemiri is one of the most important writers of his generation in Sweden. Khemiri’s novels have been translated into over twenty languages. He is also a celebrated playwright, whose six plays have been performed by over hundred international companies on stages from Stockholm to Berlin to New York to London. He was awarded a Village Voice Obie Award for his first play Invasion!, which premiered in New York in 2011. The second play God Times Five toured Sweden and the third play The Hundred We Are received the Hedda Award for best play in Norway. Khemiri’s  ≈[Almost Equal To] premiered at Dramaten in Stockholm in October 2014 to rave reviews. It has been performed in Germany, Norway, and Iceland.
